Croatian Energy Association said it finished the ninth addition to the study on the state of renewable energy projects in the country, based on data published in early August by national energy market operator HROTE. That institution issued a document in early August, stating the 2020 quotas for wind and solar power are full, with very little capacity remaining for biogas, geothermal energy and biomass, the report said. Still, investors can add 93.68 MW more in small hydropower plants, where the quota for 2020 is 100 MW.

On August 7, there were 1,207 power plants using renewable sources that were in the system for incentives, with an overall capacity of 430,88 MW, compared to 412.59 MW from 1,070 facilities at the end of January, the report on portal Croenergo.eu added. The system has 130 new photovoltaic units, one hydropower plant, three biomass-fuelled facilities and three that run on biogas.

The 16 existing wind parks contribute to the mix with 339.25 MW, while the 1,155 solar farms have an overall 40.39 MW. The third place by capacity is now held by biogas-fired power plants, having 15.93 MW, and they overtook the rank from biomass facilities, which have 14.93 MW. The biggest individual power supplier in the segment of renewables is the 43 MW wind park of Velika glava, Bubrig and Crni vrh, operated by RP Global Danilo.

Another 138 electricity-generating facilities with 502.62 MW are in the pipeline, power purchase contracts show. Most planned capacity, 404.7 MW, will come from wind parks, while biomass-fuelled generators are supposed to add 56.8 MW, the article said.
